The Community Engagement Department strives to inspire Jewish journeys and serve as a catalyst for families in Northern Virginia who are seeking out opportunities to participate in Jewish life. Programs are designed to emphasize Jewish culture, identity and values as well as connecting people of all ages and backgrounds. We offer programs at the JCCNV and at various locations throughout Northern Virginia.

These programs are often in partnership with area synagogues and Jewish agencies, including The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington.

The JCCNV Mitzvah Program provides support to those who are in need in our community. Please join fellow members, friends, and staff, as we volunteer on a number of social action projects, including making casseroles for the homeless each month, packing food boxes at an emergency food warehouse, visiting Jewish residents in retirement homes, collecting shoes for our shoebox recycling program, donating food for Thanksgiving baskets, and volunteering during our hypothermia prevention program. If you would like more details about our social action programs, please contact, or (703) 537-3064.
